           1st International Workshop on Vehicular Networking and
         Transportation systems (VENITS'15), co-located with 13th IEEE
                Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC 2015)

                    January 9 - 12, 2015 -- Las Vegas, Nevada USA


              Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore


Important Dates:

Submission deadline: October 15, 2014 (hard deadline)
Notification of acceptance: October 30, 2014
Camera-ready version: December 1, 2014



Over the years, we have witnessed the merging of wireless communications
and transportation technologies. This excellent combination of two
important fields has propelled our capabilities even further, allowing us
to communicate anytime and anywhere, thereby improving the traffic safety,
reducing the travel costs, and increasing our life quality tremendously.
Once the new Intelligent Transportation Systems are deployed, our roads and
highways will be able to provide enhanced services to users through the
combination of V2X and cellular communications, thus completely
revolutionizing when and how we communicate, commute, and navigate, in the
coming future.
Under such conditions, several issues remain open in the field on vehicular
networking, including message dissemination in congested environments,
Quality of Service (QoS), efficient and adaptive routing, MAC layer
enhancements, mobility prediction, efficient handovers, and also in
Intelligent Transportation Systems, such as efficient road traffic
managing, optimal emergency services operation, etc.
This workshop is soliciting original technical papers addressing the main
research challenges in the vehicular networking and the intelligent
transportation systems area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

- Wireless vehicular networking
- Congestion and admission control in dense vehicular networks
- Content distribution in wireless vehicular environments
- Smartphone/vehicle integration
- Service oriented architectures, service portability, P2P
- Cooperative sensing of road conditions
- Network and system architectures for mobile vehicular computing
- DSRC/WAVE communications. DSRC alternatives and supporting technologies
- Network protocols and algorithms, including clustering, routing, etc.
- Cross-layer protocol design
- Statistical analysis, prediction and management of vehicular mobility
- Multimedia communications in vehicular scenarios
- Models, simulators and tools for vehicular environments
- Communications for safety of vulnerable road users
- Communications for automated driving
